2019 Colene Clemens Vineyard “Margo”, Chehalem Mountains, Willamette Valley, Oregon


Ruby red. Fresh red fruit and floral scents with a touch of peppery spice. Juicy sweet cherry and raspberry flavors put on weight and stretch out slowly with air. Long finish steadily building in texture and leaves a hint of bitter cherry behind.

Located in the western end of Dopp Road where the Chehalem Mountains converge with Ribbon Ridge, this 122-acre property was acquired in 2005 and first planted in 2006. Starting at 350ft of elevation and rising to 650ft, this rocky south facing hillside is a mix sedimentary and volcanic soils, predominantly Wellsdale and Witzel.

Colene Clemens farming practices can best be described as sustainable, utilizing organic methods whenever possible. They put a heavy influence on soil work and incorporate a lot of “green” manure as well as the production and application of their own compost. Colene Clemens is a firm believer in low yields and as such have practiced extreme crop reduction through both conservative, short pruning and green harvesting. All fruit is hand harvested at optimal physiological ripeness and picked into quarter-ton macrobins for transport up to the winery.
